The Walk Continues

Our walk around the loop where we had our recent campout continues with more camping fun.  One of the nice things about Sisters On The Fly and other similar groups is that having a vintage trailer is not a requirement.  The only requirement is to have a good time together.  One of the Sisters had this sweet chalet.  It folds down for travel and storage and, in just a matter of minutes, she’s up and ready to go.  She had the only trailer with a Dutch door – her door folds in half when the trailer is ‘down’.  I love that she can keep the bottom closed and have the top of the door open (or vice versa, if she prefers).P6017335I was amazed when I stepped inside.  The windows seemed to bring the outdoors in.  Windows high overhead near the peak gave views of the trees and sky.  I loved the thought of lying in bed and watching the clouds go by or enjoying the trees above.  Chalet Trailer And outside, her table was ready to entertain – complete with lace tablecloth (plastic!) and candelabra!P6017342Another cute, little trailer – loved the shade on a warm afternoon!  The Sister ‘rule’ – we leave the door open when it’s OK to come in (even if we’re not at home!).  When the door is closed, we’re either away or don’t want to be disturbed.  This Sister was antiquing – away from camp for awhile.P6017344One of the Sisters had a nice, older motor home.  She told me it had very low miles on it when she bought it.  It was in ship-shape condition.P6017346She had decorated inside to make it a wonderful place for a girl to spend time. There were bits and pieces and touches of her personality and style on the outside – you had no idea how cute it was until you stepped inside.P6017348SOTF Motorhome 2And then – there was ‘Auntie Em’.  You know, ‘follow the yellow brick road’?  I wish I had taken a photo of the other side of this trailer.  She had a custom ‘yellow brick road’ saying on the side.  Next time.  I promise!  Of course you know I approve of a yellow and white trailer!P6017360I paid special attention to details on this one because the floor plan was like Miss Daffodil’s floor plan.  Some details were different but she was laid out the same as mine.  (Miss Daffodil is a bit longer and a bit wider but arranged the same.)  Auntie Em’s owner was getting ready for our Roving Dinner (progressive dinner) and she apologized that her kitchen was ‘a mess’! P6017362Her refrigerator is to the left of her closet (in closet space) – mine will be in the lower cabinet to the left of my stove.  It was hard to get good photos inside this trailer because of the sun.  I’m not complaining, you know. Just saying.P6017364The cozy daybed looks like the perfect place for an afternoon nap.  Above the bed, the folding bunk makes a perfect shelf to display treasures.  Can’t you just see Dorothy and Toto feeling right at home here?P6017365-001Beside the door is a little cabinet.  Miss Daffodil has one of these, too.P6017366-001This sweet trailer is named ‘Road Runner’.  Inside is a beautiful haven – a place for rest and relaxation.  Her owner invited my sweetheart and I in when he towed my trailer out to the campground for me.

There’s a place to share a bite to eat inside. . .P6017375And a pleasant place for a good, long chat outside.P6017374There’s even a hammock hung between two big trees in the back.  I found Road Runner’s owner relaxing here several times.  She told stories of things she saw overhead as she swayed in the shade on a warm afternoon.  She watched clouds drift by, watched mama squirrel take a wandering baby back to the nest high in the tree overhead and caught a few extra winks of sleep. P6017370Well, my friends – I think I’ll go find me a hammock in the shade somewhere.  Someplace where I can rock and relax and remember a weekend spent with Sisters who spent time together in the woods not far from home.

  1. Adrienne I've enjoyed seeing your pictures and hearing all about Sisters on the Fly. I love the vintage trailers - what a fun thing to do. I see one every once in a while in this area but not often. I love our fifth wheel and wouldn't give it up but if I were going off with the girls I'd love one of those tiny ones! blessings, marlene

  5. These are so cute. We want a motor home or trailer too, it has to have a nice 'bed' and a bathroom.
    Our goal is in two years or less and then we are going on a small trip around Oregon.
    Love the antique looks... how creative these ladies are with their homes away from homes.

  8. Oh my, I am just swooning! Aren't you the lucky one to have a little vintage trailer. We had a farm chicks show here recently and they had some to tour. We really enjoyed it and it almost set me to wanting one! I could go with that little chalet for sure. Thank you for sharing with us, it was fun!
